How to Make Dough Rise

Working With Yeast When Baking Bread

Making homemade bread is easy; but, one of the main challenges in baking bread is getting the dough to rise. Yeast will rise best in temperatures between 80 and 90 degrees fahrenheit. Finding a location in your home that stays this temperature can be difficult. If you try to make dough rise in a cooler spot, the rising will be sluggish. If you put it in a spot that is too warm, the yeast can burn itself out.

Most of us do not live in rooms that are between 80 and 90 degrees. If you do, you can just set your bread dough out on the counter to rise. Most of us need to find a warmer location.

This lens will explore working with yeast and how to make dough rise. There are plenty of ideas here, so everyone should be able to find a solution that will work for each situation.

So, let's bake bread!

The Bread Baker's Apprentice - How to Make Dough Rise Perfectly and So Much More!

Learn how to control the outcome of every loaf of bread you make, as you master the techniques outlined in this wonderful cookbook!

How to Use Your Oven to Make Dough Rise

  1. Turn your oven to "warm" for just a few minutes. Let it warm up, then turn it off. Leave the oven door shut. Cover the dough with a cloth, then set it in the oven. As long as you do not open the oven door, it should stay about the right temperature.
  2. Fill a shallow pan with hot water and put it on a lower shelf in the oven. Set your bread dough above it and leave the door closed. If the water cools off, dump it out and add more hot water.
  3. If your oven has a pilot light, you might be able to use that for your rising dough. Watch to be sure it does not get too warm. If needed, keep the door open a bit to adjust the temperature.
  4. You may be able to use the lightbulb in your oven to get it to the correct temperature for rising dough.

A Makeshift Proof Box

How to Make Dough Rise

Commercial bakeries use a proof box for their rising dough. You can make a homemade version very easily with items you already have in your house.

Step 1 - Place a towel over a heating pad.

Step 2 - Set a cake rack on top of the towel.

Step 3 - Put the dough in its bowl on the rack.

Step 4 - Invert a corrugated cardboard box or a foam ice chest over the entire set up.

Step 5 - Adjust the heating pad setting to change the temperature inside the box.

Step 6 - Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.

Tip: If you need to increase humidity for the final rise, put the loaf pans inside sealed plastic bags to which a little water has been added.

      Since I use whole wheat flour, I add a little gluten to help it rise and set it on top of the refrigerator. That works well unless we are having a particularly cold day. Then, if I'm not using the oven, I let it rise in the oven, with the light on. That seems to be just warm enough. I like your idea of the makeshift proofing box though. Going to try that.

      My favorite spot is outside in a sunny corner of our balcony, but if I'm in a hurry or it is cold I usually will put the oven on real low and put the covered bowl inside and switch the oven off.

      We all like homemade bread and buns here, so either I or my kids will make them pretty regularly. Sometimes it is a joint effort of a couple or more of us, and is a wonderful bonding experience.

      I put a quart of water in a glass measuring cup in the microwave to get hot, and put the loaves in the microwave with the hot water (no power). That does a good job. I sometimes balance 2 smaller pans of bread on top of the measuring cup or put a pan of rolls on top, or put 2 larger loaves on either side of the cup. The microwave keeps the heat in nicely. I have found that inexpensive plastic bags (food grade) that are about 10-12" square are great to cover the bread and so easy to peal off if greased a little. I wash the bags and reuse them for the baked loaves.

      I checked the bread machine option above, but I actually do not like the taste of the bread when it is baked in the machine. So I just make the dough in the machine and bake it in a conventional oven. I add about a tablespoon of parmesan (out of a sprinkler can from the store) to the other ingredients, and I think it gives the bread machine dough a better taste.

      Another thing I have learned about 25 years ago is that it is not necessary to preheat the oven. I set the oven to 350 degrees and put the loaves in for 35 minutes, and they come out perfect. I had to get a new stove 3 years ago, and it takes 10 minutes to preheat--waste of time for loaves, but I do preheat for cake or rolls. (For 30 years I had been using my husband's mother's '60's stove--remember the avocado color that was popular in the '60's?! We used her '60's avocado fridge for almost that long!)

      Our house temperature in China hovers around 50 degrees F. in the winter. Shanghai is not in the zone that is allowed heating, since it is south of the Yellow River. That means it is COLD. In the winter I have to use the oven - no other way - and I have to be very very careful to just keep it warm and not let it get hot.

      My memories swept me away to Mom making bread at least once a week when I was growing up and we still always waited for the first warm slice and Day always got the heel...well most of the time, but once in a while he would give that right to someone else. So I guess my favorite spot for dough to rise in in Mom's kitchen. Congratulations on a fully risen LotD honor!

      I live in a very warm part of the USA but one or two months a year the air temperture will drop to 50 degrees, so I built a bread rising cabinet, it is a simple device a box made from clear polycarbonite, an electrical coil that is used to keep water pipes from freezing ( I had to buy it online we don't need it here ) and a thermostat to regulate the cabinet's temperature. Prefect dough rises every time, I keep it at 110 degrees F.

      I make sure the dishwasher is empty. Run it on the rinse cycle. When it's done I put my pans of bread in it for final rising. Works like a professional bakery proofer! I used to put hot water in the bottom of the sink, invert mugs or use a rack in it and put the pans there and cover the whole thing with clear plastic. You can see what's happening and pop them in the oven at just the right time. In the hot summer I just use the counter top because it's hot and muggy enough in the kitchenn.

      I start the yeast in warm water to check that it is good and live. When the dough hasn't risen in the past, I've put dried yeast directly into the mix and I suspect that it has been to old, so now I test first. I also notice that the dough likes it really quite warm - but I put it over a too hot stove once and baked its bottom!
